Francoise Feuillat-Juillot is the daughter of the highly regarded Mercurey producer, Michel Juillot. She grew up amongst the vines and barrels of her family domaine, before studying in Paris and completing a degree in oenology at Dijon University. She now has 14 hectares of wonderfully sited, mainly old vines, spread amongst 13 different premier crus in the viticultural amphitheater that is Montagny (the southernmost outpost of the Cote Chalonnaise, known by insiders as the source of some of the best value Chardonnay in Burgundy).
